Turin and its province are known for the archaeology, art and architecture with their 2000 years old
history, but also for the natural parks rich in wildlife and the big skiing areas. Chocolate, ice cream, pastry and candy that come from a long tradition of craftmanship are perfect for a restorative break. The Cuneo area is enchanting thanks to its ancient towns, typical villages, storks and caves and the many gourmet experiences it offers, between agricultural plains and mountain valleys where outdoor activities are the core element both in winter and in summer.
The food and wine experiences and activities in vineyards and farms are also the feather in the cap of the hills in the Langhe, Roero, Monferrato and Alessandrino areas. There you will find special locations where you will have a change to discover fossils, caves, ancient cellars and towers from which you can enjoy a panoramic view.
The Biella, Valsesia and Ossola areas are perfect for families with children (from the age of 3): adventure parks with suspended trails between trees, family-friendly guided tours, rating on rivers, funicular railroads, panoramic trains and high-altitude playgrounds. The north of Piedmont also is a perfect destination for families and thanks to its lakes offers water sports, amusement parks, sandy beaches, islands, blooming gardens and well-equipped campsites that offer complete freedom for your stay.
In the Novara and Vercelli areas bike paths run across rice paddies and rows of poplar trees, giving you the chance to discover rural chapels, farmsteads and protected areas where you can see dragonflies, frogs and herons in their natural habitat.
